The flagship project at Al Qusais project is a prime example of how we can create Global Stewardship while we combat Global Warming by capturing and flaring the landfill gas that was naturally being vented into the atmosphere. Al Qusais is a registered CDM project #8269 and is achieving a reduction of CO2 equivilent of over 300K tons per year.  That is the equivilent of taking over 80,000 cars off the roads. GESS is working towards commercializing the existing LFG pilot site as well as develop three further LFG sites, and expand the business throughout the region.

Landfills are a reality in the GCC MENA region and with the aggressive targets for renewable energy the time has come to utilize this power source that can provide sustainable stable power.  All landfills need to be degassed and that gas can provide power to industry or to the grid.
